New Yorker Boiler has recently recalled approximately 191 gas-fired hot water boilers due to a carbon monoxide hazard.
About the New Yorker Boiler Recall

The boilers were manufactured in the U.S. and were sold at plumbing and heating wholesale distributors nationwide from July 2012 through Feb. 2013 – the cost of the boilers ranged from $1,600 to $3,200.
